Virtual care is exploding in health care primarily because of the Public Health Emergency.  There is so much buzz right now about the new Remote Therapeutic Management CPT codes. But how do they differ with the Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) codes?

With so much growth in virtual patient sector, it is important to explore technology advancements for practitioners wanting to build or expand their own remote patient monitoring program and expand patient care to the patient’s they serve.
